Making Fun: The Story of Funko

making fun Making Fun: The Story of Funko

“Pop culture purveyor” Funko started in a garage in 1998. Today its vinyl figures are beloved worldwide, and the company credits fans for its success.

I don’t get the Funko ‘craze’, I’ve never been a fan of their toys, but I can clearly see that they’re a well loved and sell well enough to keep adding to the 400+ items in the Funko Pop line. Wanting to learn more about the company, I watched this and now I know more about them. They’re now firmly in my “I don’t like them but man they’re doing something right” list that includes Bruno Mars and Pitt Bull, it’s obvious they have a passion for the bobble head genre and everyone involved seems invested in making their fans happy. There’s a touch of insanity when they interview their bigger fans that have collections in the thousands, people that have spent hundreds of thousands of dollars on their collection and have them all on display for no one to ever see in their own homes. I have a touch of this insanity myself with my Star Trek collection, but my own collection pales in comparison to theirs.

I suggest watching ‘Making Fun’, it was an illuminating and fun experience.
